Doesn't it just make you cringe when you realize you've chosen the wrong "base"? You know, when your face and neck are two different colors? You can have the same skin color as someone else, but different undertones. Knowing your undertone is the key to finding the color that looks more natural on you. Your undertone is the color just beneath the skin. Although skin tones change over time or due to excessive sun exposure, undertones do not. Here are a few tips that will help you determine which undertone you have.
Cool: You will have blue or purple veins. When you look at your skin in the sun, it appears blue-ish. Silver jewelry flatters cool tones. Neutral: Skin is neither pink/red/blue, yellow/gold/peach, but somewhere in between. Veins are blue-green. Both gold and silver jewelry flatters your skin tone. Skin appears greenish when in the sun. Warm: The veins appear green or olive. Gold jewelry flatters your skin tone more than silver. Skin appears yellowish when in the sun. Now that you've got it down on how to find your undertone, make sure you prep your skin by exfoliating and moisturizing your skin before testing foundation. Blending it along your jawline will give you the best results. Hopefully this helps you guys out a great deal. Having the "two toned" look....not cute. At all!
